88 YJ to TOW

Looking at a 88 YJ to tow behind my RV. Trying to find out if I can flat tow this vehicle without having to remove driveshaft, etc.

thanks much

Newbie here,

But doesn't the answer to the OP's question depend upon whether his Jeep is an auto or a manual trans, as it does with most non-Jeep cars/trucks?

Nope, it doesn't.

To flat two you put the transfer case in neutral.

14Trailcrawler,

Thank you for educating me--my professional experience is from the more traditional automotive service arena, fraught with computer-controlled AWD "Crossovers," and similar ilk.

Thanks again, for setting me straight.

Oh--is that just YJ's, or all manual and automative Jeeps, since the Dawn of Time?

Thanks much,

Y-Yes

Pretty much applies to part time 4WD vehicles. The transfer case in neutral effectively disconnects the front from the rear.
